The "ancient chinese secret" was in a commercial many years ago for a product to do with laundry. I am not sure what it was, my mind goes to starch, but anyway, it was laundry. That is why the chinese comment. When the Chinese people were in this country, they first came to build the railroad, look for gold, and they had restaurants and laundries.

That has happened to me and it drives me up the wall. I try to remember where I heard it before but it seems the harder I try to remember where the further it goes in my mind. I do think that most people have had that happen at one time or another in there life. I am one of those people.
